Weekend Update 2-28-21
Dear M100 Family,
It has been a great week back at school! So happy to be back to a “normal-ish” routine. We hope everyone has sufficiently thawed from this last weather event and your homes and lives are back to functioning at full capacity. If you need any help at all, please let us know - there are resources available through our school district to help you!
HUGE THANK YOU to the adult and student volunteers who helped hand out bottled water last Sunday! Thank you for your time and lending a helping hand to others in our community!
Thank you to Brandon Bechtel, Josh Krieg, Michael Summers, and Alex Rendon for their outstanding performance of their ensemble at the BISD Board Meeting on 2/24!
Please read this update for some new and valuable information. Hope everyone is enjoying this 3 day weekend for students!
